The extra-mural life at the school creates an active calendar of events, and the school has provided a number of workshops and opportunities to complement each area.
This has allowed for teams to excel in inter-school competitions, as well as for individual participants to represent provincial and national teams. In addition to playing an important role in the social, physical and emotional development of learners, participation in extra-mural activities builds confidence and is positively transmitted into the classroom.
